Phonics & Reading

Reading is important for so many reasons. Here are some of the reasons we think you should read every day:

All children will bring home at least one reading book each day and a reading record. We ask all parents to support their children in completing their reading record at least 3 times a week.

Rosebank uses Oxford Reading Tree to ensure that children are reading books that are suited to their needs and support progress. 


Phonics is taught in discrete lessons in Foundation Stage and Key Stage One using Letters and Sounds. Children in Key Stage 2 may receive Rapid Phonics as an intervention. Please look in the policies section of our website for more detailed information.

 School Library

All children have access to our school library every week and can take books home to enjoy either on their own or as a family. 

 Reading Rewards

Children are rewarded for reading at home and at school.  Recently, a large group of children from Key Stage 1 and 2 went on a trip to Ice Scoop Gelato as a reward for completing the Summer Reading Challenge! We now have our Book Bingo challenge! Look on the Pupils' page of the website to find out more!
